Performing data backup
If you wish to perform full backup of your Aurora Corporate 8 installation, you will need to export the database as well as backup files and directories of your installation.
You can export full structure and content of MySQL database with phpMyAdmin, some other MySQL management tool, it can be done via command line as well, using mysqldump tool. For example:
mysqldump -uroot -pYourRootPassWord afterlogic --result-file=/root/afterlogic.sql
The above assumes your database is called
afterlogic, you're using root mySQL credentials, and the SQL file will be stored under
/root. You can find the database credentials used in
data/settings/config.json configuration file.
Also, you should backup all the files of your Aurora Corporate 8 installation - or at least, its
data/ directory. You can create ZIP archive of your installation containing all the subdirectories and files. For example, the following commands will create an archive of your installation and save it under under
zip -r afterlogic.zip /var/www/afterlogic
NB: If you're using S3-compatible storage for files rather than built-in file storage, you may wish to perform your S3 storage backup as well.
